If you are a young adult (20's or 30's) or someone close to a young adult who is diagnosed with Cancer you must read this book! It doesn't matter what type, stage or treatment you are or will be undergoing just please pick this book up. In addition to the great number of resources and practical tips that are essential to navigating the bureaucratic health care system, there are wonderful, gritty stories about what it is really like to live with Cancer. As someone who was diagnosed this past Fall and is going through treatment, it was amazing to see that I am not the only one having all the feelings, frustrations, happiness, spirituality, anger, questions about relationships, etc... that are explored in this book. PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND READ THIS BOOK ASAP!

I couldn't put this book down. And no, it's not just for cancer patients. While I do connect the stories of the patients interviewed here with the experiences of my friends who have cancer, the book is also about navigating health and unexpected setbacks, about living intentionally, about struggle and survival. Plus it's a great read full of compelling real voices.
